It Don't Come Easy

As you can probably tell by the title, it's a Ringo story now...........I love Ringo so much more all of a sudden, so I thought I'd write one about him! :)

Chapter 1

Brown Eyed Girl (Van Morrison)

She held her mum's hand as they walked into the brightly lit dazzling white building. She blinked her big brown eyes. "Mummy? Where are we?"
Her mum looked down with her red tired eyes. "The hospital." she said in a hoarse voice. And they kept walking. A lady dressed in a white dress with a little cap thing on came up to her mum. They were talking and she let go of her hand. She heard the lady in white say, "This way ma'am." and the white lady and her mum walked down the big white hallway.
But she didn't go with them.
Instead, her gaze fell onto a boy in a hospital bed.
She walked over. He looked at her and smiled. He had bright blue eyes.
"Why are you here?"
He looked her up and down. "I had a surgery. Appendicitis." he said. "Why are you here?"
She shrugged, saddened. "I dunno. Me mum said me daddy's dying. He's got cancer"
"Oh. Sorry." he said, his eyes downcast.
"Not your fault." she said plopping down on his bed. "So what's your name?"
"That yer whole name?" she asked.
"Whaddya mean?"
"Well ye got a last name dontcha?"
"Oh. Starkey."
She stifled a giggle. "What?" he said. "I like that name. Starkey." she said.
"Mm. What's yer name?"
"Charlie MacDouglas."
Now it was his turn to giggle. "Charlie? That's a boy's name!"
She flushed. "Well, it's really Charlotte, but I don't like that."
"Why not? It's pretty name." he said. "Hey, ya wanna see something?!" he said, sounding excited.
"Alright. What is it?"
He lifted up his shirt to reveal a blue scar on his stomach. He looked up. "Pretty gear huh?"
She reached out and touched it. "Yeah, that's neat."
Just then there was a frantic voice. "Charlie? Chaaaarliiieee!" She looked over to see her mum looking around frantically. "Mummy!" she said waving.
Her mum looked over and sighed. "Oh thank God Charlie. Didn't I tell you to hold my hand?"
"Yeah, but-"
"No buts. Cmon Daddy wants to see you."
She looked back, her brown eyes sad. "Bye Richard.
"Bye Charlie." his blue ones equally sad.
